Vintage lady

I don't normally manage to do vintage and I suppose if I'd done some distressing it might look more vintage but I have real difficulty in bringing myself to damage beautiful papers, tearings about the most I can do without feeling guilty. I love this lady stamp ,it's from a set I got a couple of years ago from the stamp man I think it's a non sequitere (sorry about the spelling) set 1920's it also has an elegant ladt on it some fab shoes and other bits great for vintage backgrounds.

The card I used the layout from basic grey and some basic grey papers from the  nook and pantry set along with a paper ribbon, they all work so well together. I must say some of the designs I can't see myself using , so it's lucky there seems to be a design I like on the reverse of those I'm not keen on. The pearls and swirl thing I got from hobby craft when I escaped for a couple of hours last saturday afternoon while the boys watched rugby. I do feel sorry for Andrew as it's a 2 people job to get him out of the house so we don't bang his leg so he hasn't been out since we got back from the hospital. He is feeling so fed up and frustrated again and was quite down. When there has been 2 of us around to be able to get him out and back in the weather has been awful and I don't think taking him out in the cold too long would be good for his foot, as he use to say he could feel the cold in the screws in his left foot so now he has more in his right foot I think he would feel it even more especially when  new nerves will be getting sensitive down there. Pancakes with chocolate cheered him up a bit though last night just hope todays a bit better. Sorry I digress as usual.

Allsorts have an unusual challenge this time, a recipe of 3,2,1, but you get to choose what the 3,2,1 is. I will enter my card with 3 different kinds of embellishments,2 different papers or main colour you can choose and 1 paper ribbon or image again you can choose. I think it's only fair Allsorts have a choice when they gave us  a choice.

Simon says has a new challenge too this morning, to use 3 different embellishments, 2 patterned papers and one image, I can't believe my card ticks all the boxes what luck, so off i go to enter,theres a blog hop too!
Finally I would like to tell you about the DT call Amy of Amy's Paper Romance has out, she is looking for a new DT and the closing date is 20th feb announcements on 22nd, and I will be submitting this card as part of my application for the DT. If you fancy applying here's the link.
What's more Amy has candy too, just look what you could win and there's a fab in store offer.

Anyway I'm off to check out blog land and if time pemits in the next hour do a little crafting before another day begins. Thankyou for ppping by.
